When: Wednesday January 19, 2011

Floral dress: Forever XXI
Pink belt: Present from my parents
Pink wedges: Stevens (Panama)
Beige purse: ? (Panama)
Beige fedora: ? (Panama)

Where: Went to the movies with my family to watch Tangled... I absolutely LOVED it!

I am very happy with today's outfit, especially because I'm wearing a hat (hats make me happy, who knows why). This is the first time I wear this floral dress that I just bought at Forever XXI a couple of weeks ago. When I first tried it on, I wasn't quite sure if I liked the way it looked on me.

Luckily, my mom is a very honest critic and she said it looked very cute on me. I took her advice and decided to buy it. Now that I wore it today, I agree with my mom in that it's a very cute dress! In fact, I received two compliments on it today :)

Do you go shopping by yourself or do you have an honest critic (like my mom) who goes with you?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this fedora hat:

  1. My boyfriend actually goes shopping with me! But he ends up waiting on the bench, haha. So usually I am my best I think that is the best way to learn.
    Cute dress- it does look great on you! :)

  2. I took my three year old to see Tangled last weekend and she actually sat through the entire movie. It was SO cute! My new favorite!

    I sometimes take someone shopping with me but more often than not, I shop by myself. I figure I know what I like and what I don't and if I'm not comfortable with it right away, I don't want to spend the money on it.

    However...that dress is SUPER cute on you and I'm glad you got it despite your initial reaction! :)

  3. It is cute! I like the color and the asymetrical print. I take Kevin as my "honest critic" -- his tastes are alot different than mine (Also alot broader) so it has expanded my horizons to buy something he likes but that I'm not super sold on, and then figure out how to wear it, just to make him happy.

  4. my boys loved Tangled...such a cute movie. I love your dress and those fun sandals!
